Emergencies During Business Hours

South Des Moines Veterinary Center provides most emergency services for dogs and cats during normal business hours. Our highly skilled veterinarians and team will provide your pet with the best possible emergency medical and surgical care.

At SDMVC we do our very best to accommodate emergencies. A deposit may be taken for these appointments.

Please inform us if your pet receives emergency medical treatment from another emergency hospital. We are committed to keep your pet healthy, and we will guide you with post-emergency follow-up care at our veterinary center. We will collect the medical records from the emergency hospital for you, so we can keep a complete and current medical history for your pet.
